Aeria Games, a gaming community, and IAHGames, a major provider of online entertainment software and services, have become the latest companies to integrate BitTorrent’s Delivery Network Accelerator (DNA) content delivery service to ensure the fast, efficient and reliable distribution of massively multiplayer online games (MMOGs) and patches.
“By adopting the BitTorrent DNA content delivery service, we have increased the percentage of successful downloads of our game clients and patches while saving on bandwidth costs,” said David Ng, deputy chief executive officer of IAHGames, in a press release. “It plugs right into our existing infrastructure, giving us a greater degree of control over how we distribute our titles with reliability and efficiency.”
The BitTorrent DNA content delivery service is targeted at the needs of commercial content publishers as well as media companies and software providers. BitTorrent DNA allows content publishers to harness the power of user-contributed bandwidth and save on the usual server and bandwidth distribution costs.
For the online gaming community, BitTorrent provides fast downloads for MMOG clients and patches, all the while preserving an uninterrupted gaming experience.
“As the fastest growing free-to-play gaming community, Aeria Games is focused on providing the best community gaming experience to all of our players worldwide,” continues Terry Ngo, chief technology officer at Aeria Games, in the same press release. “In realizing that vision, it’s critical that we employ the best content delivery service as part of our networking infrastructure. BitTorrent DNA gives us the ability to continue rapidly building our online gaming community, offer the best free games, all the while significantly improving the end-user experience.”
BitTorrent DNA dramatically improves the speed and reliability of content delivery. It also easily integrates into any existing downloader and installer applications utilizing minimal computing resources.
“BitTorrent is proud to be working with leaders in the massively multiplayer online gaming space such as Aeria and IAHGames. BitTorrent DNA thrives in this environment by giving online game distributors an ability to manage user-contributed bandwidth, boost delivery performance and enhance the end-user experience,” said Eric Klinker, chief technology officer of BitTorrent, Inc. “With BitTorrent’s advanced congestion control technology and game-play detection features, DNA ensures that gamers won’t have to suffer any delays or breaks in their game play while simultaneously downloading the latest software patch.”
